IS LINUX FREE OF COST

Because of Linux’s Free Licence, there is no need to pay for an operating system anymore as most of the Linux desktop distributions are free of cost. Furthermore, Linux does not require registration or credit card to get started. This includesunlimited, lifetime, free of cost updates and security patches. In return Linux users are welcome to participate in further development of this operating system by providing optional feedback, bug reports, etc.

SUPPORT & COMMUNITY IN LINUX

Linux was build by users for users and so communityaround Linux is growing rapidly every day. The Linux community is very friendly and always willing to help Linux users on any technical level. There are a huge number of online forums, chatrooms, blogs and newsgroups available to provide you with 24/7 support. There is no need for a credit card to get your problems solved. The only thing required is to be polite and ask.

PERFORMANCE & RELIABILITY IN LINUX

Most of the world’s modern supercomputers use Linux due to its profound performance and reliability. Linux is a flexible operating system supporting multiple hardware platforms and yet limiting hardware requirements to run this operating system to a bare minimum. No operating system is perfect but Linux is very close to perfection due to the constant involvement of an ever growing Linux community providing support and software improvements.

Comments on linux

 

We migrated key functions from Windows to Linux because we needed an operating system that was stable and reliable one that would give us in-house control. So if we needed to patch, adjust, or adapt, we could.

Keith Chuvala, SpOC for NASA, 2013

Our most potent Operating System competitor is Linux and the phenomena around Open Source and free software. The same phenomena fuels competitors to all of our products. The ease of picking up Linux to learn it or to modify some piece of it is very attractive. The academic community, start up companies, foreign governments and many other constituencies are putting their best work into Linux.

Bill Gates, Microsoft CEO, 2001
